U.S. 95 will be closed between Fallon and Schurz April 19-29 as the Nevada Department of Transportation reconstructs a section of highway.
Nearly one dozen electronic highway message signs will be placed across the region advising drivers of the closure. Motorists are advised to use alternate highways and plan additional travel time while detouring the closure. The road work schedule is subject to change based on weather and other factors.
Crews will work 24-7 during the closure to excavate 10 feet of highway, and reinforce and compact a 2,000-foot section of the highway base before repaving. The reconstruction will help reinforce the deteriorating roadway base to provide a smoother and safer drive for motorists.
The highway improvement project, launched in fall 2020, will repave approximately 30 miles of U.S. 95 between the U.S. 95A junction in Schurz and 10 miles south of Fallon and make the following improvements:
The project by contractor Road and Highway Builders will improve the highway after it was last fully reconstructed in 2003.
Further project information is available at dot.nv.gov or by dialing (775) 888-7000.
